She is survived by daughter Cynthia and granddaughters Caroline and Zoe, brother Don (Campbell) and nieces and nephews. The family extends special thanks to all who loved and cared for Patsy at Belmont Village Senior Living, Buckhead. Plans for a celebration of her life will be shared at a later date.
